An article on consistently upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, will be published.
The article by Xi, also Chinese president and chairman of the Central Military Commission, will be published on Friday in this year's 18th issue of the Qiushi Journal, a flagship magazine of the CPC Central Committee.
The article stresses that socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era is both the outcome and the continuation of the great social revolution by the people under the leadership of the Party.
This must be carried out consistently, it says.
Socialism with Chinese characteristics did not just fall from the sky. It is, in fact, a valuable result of the painstaking efforts made by the Party and the people at great cost, which is a hard-won achievement, it says.
The significant success of socialism with Chinese characteristics in China demonstrates that socialism did not collapse and will not collapse. On the contrary, it has thrived with vigor and vitality, reads the article.
The success of scientific socialism in China has a significant bearing on Marxism, scientific socialism and world socialism, it adds.
The Party's 19th National Congress reached a major political conclusion that socialism with Chinese characteristics had entered a new era. It should be acknowledged that this new era is a new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics rather than any other kind of new era, according to the article.
It is fundamental that the Party should hold high the banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics so as to realize its historic mission in the new era, the article says.
Socialism with Chinese characteristics is becoming a banner for the development of scientific socialism in the 21st century, as well as a mainstay for revitalizing world socialism, it says.
The article adds that the Party has the responsibility, confidence and capability to make greater contributions to the new development of scientific socialism.
